Reviews for Smooth Sweet Tea
"This is very similar to how I make my sweet tea. The recipe is simple and tasty. I substitute the baking soda with fresh lemon juice to cut the bitterness. I also like my tea a little sweeter so I ended up using more sugar. Overall good recipe that is easy to do different variations on!"
